I'm planning on getting a Ninja250 as soon as I can. Some of the things i would like to do with it eventually, is to take some riding courses, get a few years of experience, and do a few track days. Once I become good enough, I know i will want to ride fast, too fast for public roads. What options are there for amateur racing leagues? Is there a thing like SCCA except for bikes? I live in kansas and I dont think there are many tracks around here, only one that I know of. Could anybody give me a website for these leagues, or some general info, like how much would it cost each season? Thanks in advance.

Just search for Kansas/track days or for surrounding states.

Track days typically require a minimum of gear to be safe and have equipment that will not let you down on the track. To race, you need significantly more EVERYTHING.

Get the 250. Take a MSF training class or two. Ride smart.

By the time you are truly ready for a track day or to start racing, you will have uncovered friends who do this type of riding and know more of what you need to know.

Right now, I'd focus on getting the bike! That is the fun part that you are closest to at the moment! Have to wait a bit for the bike? Check out the MSF class schedule for your area. It works like an SCCA Auto-x Novice school. They provide bikes and you will have a blast. :thumb:

Go do a track day. You dont have to wait all that long. Once you got enough control of a bike to keep up with a car, start at it. You will learn much faster. Most track organizations are affiliated with some racing organization. You can get your liscence there.

For race organizations check wera.com or ccsracing.com

Be prepared to spend all your money and have a whole lot of fun doing it. Good luck!
